Our Company

For almost a hundred years we have been intimately involved in the gemstone and jewelry business. Walter Arnstein founded what would become The Natural Sapphire Company when he began selling zircons in New York City in 1939. Through dedication, hard work, expertise, and a genuine love of stones, we have grown to become the largest purveyor of natural, untreated sapphires. With the launch of our e-commerce website in the early 2000s, we now offer our customers the complete catalog of our inventory online as well as the traditional brick and mortar experience with personal appointments in our showroom offices. Learn more about our company through the links below.
